Best friends

Hi peeps! Last week was a bit rough for me. Had to deal with some dramarama courtersy of some people. But, among all of what happened, two moments happened that I won't forget.

First one happened on Thursday. I was so upset about something that someone said and sent an email to my girl, Leslie. Just 2 short sentences to vent off. Next thing I knew, she called & sang this silly but super cute diddle of how much she loves me. She made me laugh and cried at the same time. I laughed because she cracks me up, I cried cause I feel so blessed that I have such a thoughtful friend who when she thought it was bad, immediately call me just to make sure I am okay and just to show she cares.

The second one happened on Friday. Out of the blue, my other girlfriend, Deb called. I consider her like my sister. We're both not the type that chat a lot on the phone, but when we do catch up it's always like no gap, if you know what I mean. Anyway, she called because that morning as she was thinking about all the important people in her life, she realized that I am the only person that truly, truly her very best friend, who would always be there for her, regardles of where life take us and that she is so thankful to have me. Peeps, I love my girlfriend and I know how they feel about me. But, it's always nice to actually hear it.

I am glad to know that I've been a good friend. I don't have a big circle of friend, but the ones that I do have and really close to me, I love them and they're amazing. The kind of friend that you know you can call at 2 o'clock in the morning and you know they'll be there for you (mm... we do set regulation to what kind of call we would entertain at that hours, emergency, life changing kind). So, today's post dedicated to my girlfriends who I love so much and are the best of friends to have. I am grateful and thankful to have them in my life.

Sorry for the long chatter, just have to share that. Please let me know if I chat too much. :) On to card, shall we? For today's card I used CPS Sketch 180, which kind of similar to Card patterns 77. And the colors inspired by Simon Say Stamp Summer Time Blue challenge. This is my first Tiddy Inks digi stamp. I saw her at Donna Mikasa's blog and fell in love with the image immediately. She looks so spunky & I like that.

Back at the CHA, one of my best purchase was the Sakura Glitter pens. I tried it at a make & take at one of the booth and have to have it. Here's an up-close of the card, so you can see what I am talking about.

You see the outline of her skirt, how it has some shine/glitter to it. That's courtesy of Sakura Glitter pen. That pen rolls so smooth and add subtle glitter. Hard to show on pic, but in real life, it add amazing details to your image. Must have if you love glitters!

I'm entering this card for a few challenges. Now, in case you wondering how did I do that. Peeps, I am not that crazy to check what challenges are out there. I usually make a card based only on one or two challenges and then after it's done, I just see what other challenge it fits. Otherwise it's almost impossible to follow and trying to fit all the different challenge in 1 card. My motto: keep it simple & easy. :)

Okie dokie, may this week be a super duper great week for you all. Hugs, Vera
